Playwright (The Vagina Monologues, Necessary Targets, The Good Body) and author (Insecure At Last) Eve Ensler is the founder of V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that has raised more than $75 million to date and funded over 12,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic Of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq. Her newest work, I Am An Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls Around the World, is a celebration of the authentic voice inside every girl and an inspiring call to action for girls everywhere to speak up, follow their dreams, and take agency over their minds, bodies, hearts and curiosities.
